Still, it's not "most" of our top prospects.
Look at the scrolling list at the top of the page: Granlund, Brodin, Coyle, Dumba, Larsson, Hackett, Phillips, Zucker, Bulmer, and Lucia.

Who on that list has met or exceeded expectations this season? Brodin and Zucker certainly have. Larsson has likely met a fan's expectations too. Lucia as well. But Granlund, Coyle, Dumba, Hackett, Phillips, and Bulmer have either not met expectations, or if they have, your goalposts have moved to justify their play. That's 6 right there, and 3 of the top-4 that have had disappointing seasons to date.

I find it ironic that you use the word "fast" here. This team isn't a fast car--literally too. Fletcher has yet to build a fast car. If he had, even a mediocre driver could have run up front with it.
